5:41grown up in I'm go and get up everything from the sunshine guys just to let

5:46everyone know it's there where you were originally from exactly on the sunshine

5:51guys as planned a command oh yeah and what I believe commanded by August came

5:58here when I was started by school pretty much like that

6:02just 214 ourselves entertained so you came to maybe say yet maybe a saying

6:08which is Palm Beach currumbin which is one of the best for you can i'm going to

6:13win the bulk eyes you would I was a little too much more for a sports are

6:17they have the best sports certain program football and all that kind of

6:21stuff sounds like after that was their only option to that swim in that river

6:25but will queensland so we were already saw the border so yeah it was previously

6:30was and you wouldn't do is make a mean that schools and weekend making myself

6:35and doing our all get in the shower right at school in $YEAR mustang found

6:40that's fine we had a lot of fun people there in school and some of my favorite

6:46memories you know it getting that basket wielded Kira yeah getting the bus from

6:51kira and the morning service and then everyone on the bus together and allies

6:56this and try to pick get that by Sanders Creek equipment either way so good

7:01yeah somebody cure . here's the Bastille there are good and down is it like I'm

7:11in self wise and thanks why since then has it changed much like for getting you

7:16think I'm an honor

7:17yeah we all may not have spent a lot of influx with different nationalities and

7:22staff and that hasn't changed that much

7:25I think it has them all the biggest change that's happened for surfing or I

7:31can hear is the same problem d yeah i know that you know there's a lot of

7:35people that say before that same bypass system was putting the ways we're better

7:40you know that too

7:44we're at our decide you know there were certain days

7:47sure that were better but we've had some pretty amazing legs moving

7:51need to have we difficult to cure so cute what it was

7:56he's a real bomber that we don't have that anymore yea even we were there so

8:04many I guess that's a topic that could go on and on

8:09there's so many pros and cons about areas yeah and that red dress we had for

8:13a long time really just after i think probably stuff that more than the scene

8:17well that's all I think that was probably . to blind while we lost kiram

8:21and still can't replace our tweet bad still buried between by I don't we you

8:27know we bury Kira yeah we didn't just to explain to the listeners they're there

8:32what we're talking about is some reading on the Gold Coast rapper ox and tweet by

8:37we had a beautiful beautiful big way that side I'm history about where which

8:44is probably java nuys favorite wave and not 20,000 beautiful big left and now

8:49the big ship came and dredged it and then like built that and pumping jetty

8:54on that side of arm over the crown bar which is called tos on the other side

8:59and and now the couple to send into snap we still have Cara Imperial was probably

9:04the best wave in the world one of them and down and the god in flux with sound

9:11like they just pump two months and we lost that wave still writes and it's

9:15starting to come back with you it'll take us back inside because now we can

9:19see the little boy we've got a few hundred other things and we can we can

9:23start to see a beach on the rocks well there's been an address on looks like a

9:28bit of all care about it doesn't matter of five kinda close out think yeah that

9:34you can get seriously checked out but not like it was a point right before it

9:40doesn't break the instrument yeah sure yeah and so yeah so I'm like just to

9:48come back to your around your competitive Korea which has been so good

9:53you wanna will title which was fantastic i was there and it was just sensational

9:58I was

9:59just a long time coming yeah that's what I was young it was going to know just

10:04like yours but always when I was saying that as long as you all know that I'm

10:11but handle it when it finally advising of a you're probably one of the other

10:18girls against the programs that feeling because you had that long bright that

10:22long break and you charge for a while then when offer them tried and I guess

10:29yeah just bitter sweet isn't it it's so straight there when you get it and it

10:35was like slow inside that sometimes it can pop a lot ankle injuries and you're

10:39right there and didn't happen

10:41did you ever think that wasn't gonna happen yeah you do

10:44sure if it had to happen that you too i don't know what would have happened if

10:49you like I'm over here having trouble

10:52yeah so how many years do you think you're gonna keep competing for i'm not

10:57sure and I'm really yeah because it even Adam I want to pin it does 2112 wanted

11:06to use my water towards I'm enjoying it

11:09I don't want to throw out here now I just you know I just time takes a lot of

11:16cool that I get to work with no title to be on you know to do what I had to do

11:20and I've done that I really was want to get back to this enjoying a certain and

11:25you're like painting and I just do that i don't know you know as on this line is

11:31that happening around me really easily I love it sorry I'm keeps me like I'm

11:37afraid that if I don't compete it'll keep me it won't keep me as hungry and

11:45willing to serve into to chase white and you know maybe we'll just have to put

11:50off the gas of you and I don't want to do that yeah I want to still get valid

11:54ya do still you know

11:56the head I'm not gonna try to qso gonna change somewhat no I down without having

12:01dinner doing this

12:02haha well we see me excited to go to page ID you snapper always wives i just

12:10went you know that if I could maybe pick and choose events always gonna be hard

12:16it's gonna be hard to leave the tour because the ones on this will be an

12:21aside your invisible to me like yeah DJ Jay by snap barbells i love Tahoe Haiti

12:31you know there's a couple on there are probably a wooden case for as much but i

12:37still enjoy

12:38yeah you know probably be hard to miss to show that i couldn't know is it w SL

12:44let you do that I think so you don't think I'll just today's for events like

12:48my event

12:49ya Salam 50 is only exactly give her like I don't think that weird that

12:54you've got to put it with more than that yeah and I think that's kind of selfish

12:58in a way for his elegant get other than going to get off set em the transitions

13:03hard then obviously I've done it and I'm not having two beautiful boys and

13:09probably won't be as hard for you I mean you've got you know AV Macy and and

13:15Molly and um you know I'm sure you know you look it apart from yourself

13:22traveling you don't do it so much they decided to the kids at school obviously

13:26they're older but when you first had the babies from your pretty much one of the

13:32first or maybe Denny wills before you traveling with family until it doesn't

13:36make it better and easy I'm yeah and you know it's weird because like this year

13:42we've got this break between i'm going to do trestles and for myself and I'm

13:46and then went back for a 22 and wait right between that a brain so I'm coming

13:52home and then four wakin family and we're all going to Europe for the all
